Difference Between Deeds vs. Titles

Title is the legal way of saying you own a right to something. For real estate purposes, title refers to ownership of the property, meaning that you have the rights to use that property. It may be a partial interest in the property or it may be the full.

Deeds, on the other hand, are actually the legal documents that transfer title from one person to another. It must be a written document, according to the Statute of Frauds. For a deed to be legally operative, it must include the identification of the grantor (seller) and grantee (buyer) and the adequate description of the property.
